Exodus 32:7

Context

32:7 The Lord spoke to Moses: “Go quickly, descend, 1  because your 2  people, whom you brought up from the land of Egypt, have acted corruptly.

1 tn The two imperatives could also express one idea: “get down there.” In other words, “Make haste to get down.”

2 sn By giving the people to Moses in this way, God is saying that they have no longer any right to claim him as their God, since they have shared his honor with another. This is God’s talionic response to their “These are your gods who brought you up.” The use of these pronoun changes also would form an appeal to Moses to respond, since Moses knew that God had brought them up from Egypt.
